Philadelphia wasn't the only team nosing around Wilson, either. Then New York Jets senior personnel executive Terry Bradway was so high on Wilson that he earned the moniker "Russell Bradway" inside the building. And John Dorsey, the new general manager of the Kansas City Chiefs, who was with the Green Bay Packers at the time, said that Wilson's interview in 2012 was the best he had seen in 25 years.
As is often the case in the NFL, the line between franchise savior and "the one that got away" is perilously thin. It's no coincidence that Reid and Bradway are no longer with the organizations that failed to pull the trigger on Wilson before the middle of the third round.
